Featherstone’s latest exhibit, Power, is a large collection of a variety of work from Island artists, all having to do with their definition of “power.”

“Power in numbers or the power in one can act or produce an effect,” the organization stated in its call for artists. “As artists, our creative possibilities are endless and we find our own unique voices from within to then show our power and opinions through a variety of mediums.”

Approximately 25 artists are in the show, including guest curator Richard Limber, whose piece “The Elephant in the Room” is an assemblage of four pieces that were created by others. The piece includes a sword by Mike Craughwell, a torso by Susan Pratt, and two found pieces: paintings of a gas mask and elephants, which Mr. Limber will return to where he found them once the show ends.

The show is open daily from 12 noon to 4 pm. Featherstone is located off Barnes Road in Oak Bluffs. For more information, call 508-693-1850 or visit featherstoneart.org.
